Book Review Elaine Howlin Book Blog

This totally surprised me! I usually feel a bit meh about cosy mysteries but this was great. I guess I just found the one that works for me. This was originally published in 1990 and you can definitely tell. Woman are portrayed quite differently now as opposed to back then in genre fiction but the book is still very enjoyable.

“I gripped the stapler even harder and felt like a fool planning to battle a crazy man with a stapler that even, I suddenly remembered, contained no staples. Well, strike that line of defense.”

    1. I really want to read this series sometime although I do want to reread and finish the Sookie Stackhouse books first. I like the two covers that you picked best too 😊 although I think I also quite like the omnibus ones
